The Stimson Center project, Iran and America: A Dialogue about Disability, held in partnership with BlueLaw International LLP, the Harvard Law School Project on Disability, and Iranian partner organizations, assembled civil society leaders, academics, and other experts for a US-Iran cross-cultural dialogue on disability law and rights. The Dialogue has afforded a unique, open platform for creative thinking on how to integrate the content of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities into a country’s policy and legal system. Participants met for two sessions over the course of a year, in Istanbul, Turkey.
